A Plethora of Mirabilia

Wait till you see these.

I have had two Mirabilia RR's land on my doorstep in the last week. I have been madly stitching away. And, my RR has come home.

To start.
I stitched Winter Queen on Autumn's RR.


Here is her RR as it left my home.



Then I stitched Emerald Mermaid on Kaye's RR.


Here is her RR as it is ready for mailing.


And the most beautiful thing I have ever seen - my RR is home.


The stitcher's have done the most incredible job ever. To the 7 wonderful ladies who stitched this - Autumn, Kaye, Melissa, Sophia, Rachel, Jenn and Annette - my heartfelt thanks and gratitude for this heirloom.
The photo does not do it justice. In person, it is stunning, simply gorgeous.
I will be taking it home and my BFF Beatrice will finish the last block for me. I was going to make a pillow with the finished product but now have decided to have it framed. It is just so special and it deserves to hang where everyone can see it.

I also received Rachel's Mirabilia RR in the mail yesterday but will save that for the next posting.

We are getting ready to pack up and head back to Canada. We will be leaving here on the 17th, going to visit my sister in Texas for a week and then wander home. We should be back in Canada by the 28th of April.
Please do not send me any mail to my Arizona address after the 10th.

There are over 400 posts in my blog reader. I am so sorry, I have been stitching like crazy and just couldn't do both.  I will do my best to catch up on all your wonderful projects this week. I have not forgotten you.

Keep those needles smoking everyone!

The blocks you stitched are beautiful, not to mention the RR's themselves. What a piece to cherish.

What a wonderful treasure Kathy! It's absolutely gorgeous. Can't wait to see it in person.
The work you did on the other two RR is beautiful as well. Judging from these, there are a lot of very talented stitchers out there.
Safe trip home!

Safe travels!

I absolutely love your background!! I am a frog nut and it's just way too cute, LOL.

Love your RR's, and especially the Emerald Mermaid (maybe it's because that's my birthstone?!, hmmm).

Thanks for sharing.

These Mirabilias are stunning. Must say I like the way you set yours up the best of all.
Sorry you won't be heading this way before you return to Canada. Of course visiting your sister is much more important. Have a fun visit with her and have a safe trip home.
